Description
Ausone, named after the famous Roman poet, shares with Cheval Blanc the distinction of being the greatest Saint-Émilion, thanks to its exceptional vineyard which produces every year one of Bordeaux’s mythical wines. Château Ausone is a wine of marvellous balance, which nonchalantly defies the passage of time. Great vintages may expect a half-century's lifespan. The wine is a combination of finesse and admirable fullness, with elegant fruit and smooth fleshy texture, which is never too massive.
